Default First MoBo purchase and install

Any tips i should know? I've read a lot and watched videos so i think i have a clear idea of what to do. So far:

I'll use Zero insertion force on the cpu , just letting it fall in so as not to bend pins
I've downloaded the latest bios from EVGA and created a usb flash
I have arctic silver and compound remover
I have a ground strap and im going to touch a power supply that is plugged in before beginning
I'll double check all stand offs and make sure none came out when i remove the old board
I've backed up to a second hard drive and created a windows repair disk
I used a key finder to copy all my activation codes

Im really hoping that i'll put all this together and it will just boot up the first time. Anything i might have over looked?

Thanks for any advice
